There should be a zero charge invoice as a record of work done.

Good to hear of a good outcome,it shows they must be getting softer as in the past if you didn’t have 100% services with Mazda they only offered 30-50%. I have tried a few times to get my camshaftrenewed so that I  don’t have to worry about it but they insist that it may never go,even though it would save them the added cost of a turbo and cleaning out the swarf if it did. The trouble is forums make it seem like the problem is worse than it is as nobody says anything when there are no faults only with a problem. I suppose only Mazda knows how many it has done compared to how many cars sold and obviously think there is no case to change the rest.

Well done you. Could also be a helpful precedent for others should they find themselves in the same position.

Important update
Car in at dealership and it was found that some data has been incorrectly entered (to be honest, never explained where it was entered) but vehicle computer reset, correct info entered into it and it is now displaying correct service, tyre swap and oil change intervals.
Might be worth anyone else with similar issues to get it checked for "incorrect data input"

Quick update for anyone having the same problems. I refused to accept the 50% contribution that the garage told me Mazda were willing to pay. I contacted Mazda directly and they have now confirmed to me that they will pay 100% of the repair bill.

Hi. I just got a '15 plate cx5 sport nav and although it's got some of the 2015 updates (grill, Dab, etc), it doesn't have the lane keep assist or blind spot monitoring.

I do believe that it has a front camera system which leads me to my potentially silly question...

...Is it possible to get Mazda to retrofit this to my cx5?

Thanks in advance!

In a word, no.

The features you state were factory fitted as part of the Safety Pack. It can’t be retrofitted.

If this can be done it will be expensive, the lane keep assist and BSM were part of the safety pack

Just bought this car a week ago, and put 60 miles on the clock. Went out today the engine started up fine, went for about 2 minutes up the road when the warning message (High tick over due to Glow plug cleaning) or words to that effect came up in the info dial, this cleared after a few more minutes at 50 mph. I believe it's just an information warning anyone else getting this message and is it normal?
Are you sure it wasn't an injector cleaning message? I had this on first start up when I collected from the dealer and he told me to wait until it cleared before I drove off. It's not happened since in 3,600 miles and numerous start ups.
